Turkey hasn't shared Khashoggi audio with USA, minister says

Boston Massachusetts

A Turkish official says investigators are assessing the possibility whether the remains of missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi may have been taken to a forest in the outskirts of Istanbul or to another city, if and after he was killed inside the diplomatic mission earlier this month.

Trump said he was waiting for details from "about three different investigations so we can get to the bottom of" Khoshoggi's disappearance.

Trump said that the punishment would be "severe" if he finds out that Saudi Arabia harmed the journalist.

"I visit the country regularly and see high growth potential - and high actual growth in the private sector", Mucic said in an interview.

President Trump said on "Trish Regan Primetime" that it "would be bad" if Saudi Arabia's leadership had any knowledge of Khashoggi's disappearance.

Trump has largely stood by the Saudis over the past week or so as they've repeatedly denied involvement.

Four leading human rights and press freedom groups have urged Turkey to call for a United Nations probe into the possible murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in order to prevent a cover-up of the alleged crime.

'We'll be making a statement, a very strong statement'.

Pompeo told reporters he stressed to the Saudis that the US takes "very seriously" Khashoggi's disappearance.

Pompeo declined to comment on what the U.S. believes might have happened to Khashoggi but made clear Washington takes the situation "very seriously".

"Here we go again with, you know, you're guilty until proven innocent", he said yesterday.

Khashoggi, a longtime Saudi critic, has not been seen publicly since he walked into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2.

Trump, who has forged closer ties with Saudi Arabia and the 33-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, acknowledged for the first time on Thursday that Khashoggi, a U.S. resident and Washington Post columnist, had likely been killed.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin will not attend the Future Investment Initiative summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, as questions linger about what happened to journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Mnuchin and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced on Twitter Thursday.

Mnuchin said the decision was made after the White House meeting with Trump and Pompeo.

"If the President refuses to stand up to Saudi Arabia, it is incumbent upon Congress to take a stand to not only defend USA values, but to send a strong signal of support to journalists and democracy activists everywhere", Hoyer added.

Saudi Arabia has become a major tech backer in recent years, investing significant funds in companies like Uber, Tesla, and WeWork and contributing billions of dollars to SoftBank's Vision Fund as it looks to move its economy beyond oil.
